For centuries henna has been used to adorn and beautify brides. In modern days, henna has become very popular for parties, hens night, sangeet, festivals, fashion shows, photo shoots, and all other kinds of function.
The henna application is non-permanent and has no harmful chemicals with exception to black henna. The application should be done about 2 days prior to the event as the henna stain colour takes approximately 24-48 hours/ up to 48 hours to fully develop.
There are a few tips and cautioning that would help you to achieve the darkest possible henna stain color. Firstly, manicure, pedicure, or waxing should be done before applying the henna. You should ensure your skin is free of any oily products and lotion as it would prevent the henna stain from developing. Exfoliating your skin to remove dead cells enables better henna coloration.
The longer the paste is on your skin, the darker the henna stain. Therefore, allow the henna paste to be on for at least 4-5 hours. Do also take note that the henna stain varies for individuals depending on their body heat; the warmer the skin area, the darker the stain will be.
Once the henna paste has completely dried (with duration of 4-5 hours), remove it by simply scrapping it off your skin. Avoid, as much as possible, any contact with water for the henna stain to last long.
